OME partner KaiShan announces its first geothermal power plant operating in Hungary

A portion of the following Press Release was reported by Tom Wu of ZheJiang KaiShan Compressor Co., LTD from LinkedIn:

On November 29, on the outskirts of Budapest, Hungary, the Geumsan Tura geothermal power station project was formally grid-connected. This is the first geothermal power project in Europe (for Kaishan) and the first geothermal power station in Hungary.

The project was designed and built entirely in accordance with European standards, and has undergone strict inspection and acceptance to obtain grid-connected licenses. The electricity produced is imported into the European grid.

The project uses a patented "one well" cascade ORC screw expansion power generation technology. The power station installed 3.35MW, and at the same time provides 5.23MW greenhouse heating.

At present, the construction of other Kaishan assisted geothermal power plants overseas is progressing smoothly. As overseas geothermal power plants are put into operation one after another, the transition from geothermal power, to geothermal new energy operators, and geothermal power generation equipment providers has made marked progress.
